Just How Good Is the Sigma Art 24-70mm f/2.8 for Video?

The 24-70mm zoom range is versatile, and for many photographers and videographers, it's probably one of the best starting points when building out your lens collection for a new mount.

It spans the focal length range of three popular prime lenses, at 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, and extending up to a usable medium-telephoto focal length of 70mm. This span allows photographers to use the lens for a range of different purposes and allows lens-makers to make these modern lenses almost as good as the equivalent prime lenses.

The question that Thomas Kovacik explores in this detailed video is whether the Sigma Art 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN for sony full frame is versatile enough to suit his lightweight run-and-gun setup with the Sony FX3. He is looking at whether the build quality, speed of focus, accuracy, and image quality live up to his expectations, and the lens does not disappoint.

Watch the video for his take on why he chose this lens when shooting video instead of other Sigma, Sony, and Tamron lens choices. The video is segmented into sections about the design, size and weight, focal length, and focusing ability. Kovacik also explains why the lens suits his style of shooting, when he uses it, when he doesn't use it, and what, if anything, he dislikes about the lens. He wraps up with his take on when someone should buy this lens.

For the price, the Sigma Art 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN is a very versatile lens with good image quality. If you've used it, let us know what you think of it and what you use it for in the comments below.
